Well, that might be useful to me.... Thanks!
I assume he reverse engineered the .ctg format to do that, so could he write a .ctg to .pgn or .ctg to .abk converter?

Unfortunately, Nigel hasn't really done much in computer chess for a few years. He got hooked into making mods for the Grand Prix Legends racing game.
